My poulan 2075c chain saw won't start. Pull recoil rope will not pull out smoothly.


I would suspect possibly you have the incorrect spark plug installed which is allowing piston to contact it preventing complete rotation of engine.
Or possibly the engine has so much compression that you are not used to it and it is making you believe the engine will not rotate with spark plug inserted?.

Weed eater featherlight XT260 rope pully


Your recoil could be messed up if you cant pull the rope out or if its just too hard to pull out you could have it too tight.

How do you replace the starter cord for lawn mower?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You will have to remove the recoil assy if it can be removed without the air shroud or the entire upper engine cover / air shroud with the recoil. This procedure should be performed by 2 people that at NOT distracted.

First you will have to have a replacement rope. Burn the end of the new rope your going to install into the spool and pinch it so that the end is smaller than the rope and pointed. Install the pull handle on the new rope and make sure there is a good single knot on the end of the rope that goes into the pull handle.

Next you will have to remove all pieces of the old starter rope.
Then you have to pre-wind the spring of the recoil so that if you were to allow it to turn it would turn in a direction that would pull the starter rope onto the recoil spool
NOTE: Once the pre-wind is done if anyone lets go of the spool it can DAMAGE the recoil spring When your prewinding... Turn the spool until snugs and does not want to move anymore. Then back off the spool until the rope KNOT hole is aligned with the recoil rope guide.
Thread the new rope through recoil rope guide and into the KNOT hole in the spool. (Ice pick scribe jewlers screwdriver... will be required to pull the new rope up and out through the knot hole. TIE a KNOT in the bitter end of the rope and pull the knot into the knot hole.
FINALLY have 2nd person release the spool and it will rewind onto the spool.
Install the recoil / air shroud.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, I have a Poulan gas blower, the rope will not pull out


remove spark plug for inspection
1) silver or aluminum color
STOP the piston is seezed. TOO costly to repair

2) plug dark brown or black (pretty much normal)
remove recoil housing for tangled rope or broken rope rotor

Recoil spring on homelite chain saw doesn't retract pull rope


Easy suggestion would be to get new spring coil. Is it older saw? Have had to change mine on poulan saws before.

Have a recoil pull start mower that won't recoil


the starter clutch probably needs cleaning. It is located right on top of the fly wheel. Pull the the pull rope housing off and you can see it
